What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Proper Edjercatin' takes time (and does not include pumpkins)

Well, as you can see, now that the school year is in full swing again, I am having a hard time keeping up the blog! Having two children needing to be properly and formally edjercated has thrown me for a bit of a loop.  The only way to accomplish everything in a day (and sometimes, not even then) was to give up my precious few hours in the middle of the day of quiet time.  I used to use this time for blogging and other "me time" things and now it is most often filled up with history and science.   Giving it up has been a sad, sad change for me.  I really *LIKED* that mid-afternoon break.  But it does work well for school~ we can accomplish our agenda for the day and it provides a quiet atmosphere (the littles still rest) for the topics that require more thought and discussion, like History and Science and for activities like castle building and the like.

That means, though, that you will have to be patient with me.  And I will have to be patient with myself.  And I will have to be patient with the children who require more of my time than every before.  Blech.  Patience has always been such a hard thing for me, too.  ;-)

I'll blog whenever I can eek out a few minutes in the day.  EEEeeeeeeeeekkk.

Here are a few photos from our yearly trip to the pumpkin farm.    It must be done- it's TRADITION!

 

 
This, by the way, is not a grumpy look- though it looks that way.  She was actually delighted and enraptured by the pigs and this is her "Why dost thou bother me with photographs whenst I gaze upon these lovely swine" look.  The tear?  I think because it was cold.  Or, she was moved to tears with love.  ;-)








It was this moment that I thought what a beauty she is and how...grown up she looks to be mine.



 
And for Rebecca, an answer to your question in the comments box about the fritters- Why YES.  I *DID* make them.  And they were goooood.  :-)
